[Chillingo+NewFX Games] Mad Wheels new action top down racer

Hi everyone!

Today NewFX Games announces its next action-racing game "Mad Wheels". For those familiar with our pedigree: Mad Wheels will be Horror Racing on steroids. For those who are not: Mad Wheels is a top-down action racing game that allows you to blow your foes to smithereens whilst still trying to win the race!

Feel the tight turns, dodge every obstacle and avoid the devastating explosive rockets. Each car has a unique super weapon that allows you to play dirty if need be. If your more of a brawler, each car can use whatever machinery they were built with to cause destruction.

You'll get the following at your disposal:

* A bunch of vehicles each with unique combat abilities
* 5 different level environments
* Online scoreboards
* Wi-fi multiplayer
* A high-octane high-adrenaline race!

Support for all iDevices: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and it will still run smoothly on older devices.

Also we are glad to announce that the game will be published by Chillingo - Leading Independent Games Publisher and division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS). "We're happy to collaborate with NewFX Games team on such a promising project" - Chris Byatte, General Manager of Chillingo.

At this moment in time the core game engine is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work left. We're experimenting with some features, polishing the gameplay and doing our best to make sure you will get the most of your playing experience!

Stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for Mad Wheels!

Looks awesome guys. Great potential anyway.

Rock N Roll racing style. A little anyway.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.

Not bad! The graphics aren't exactly stunning though (Enviroments look empty and have no shaddows), but otherwise it looks like a fun game!

I don't have a problem with the graphics, but I fully agree about the speed. It almost looks like the game footage was captured in slow-motion.

I loved Rock 'n Roll Racing back in the day, and keep hoping someone will create a worthy successor.

Please, keep in mind that the graphics are still work in progress and will be improved. And don't worry about speed - due to genre specifics it can't be too fast, but even in current state (racing+combat) it feels very intense, at least in our testers' experience. Still, vehicle behavior and combat system will be tuned further during upcoming balancing stage. Chillingo's producing team will assist us in this process.

And thank you for the feedback!
